Practically Perfect

Specialising in pretty nails using CND Shellac! If like me you like your nails to be 'Practically Perfect' then read on! I am a fully insured member of the Guild of Beauty Therapists, qualified in manicures/pedicures and UV Gel Polish and have just opened up my own little salon within in my home on the Shoreham/Southwick boarder, offering beautifully Shellac-ed nails for those of you who are partial to a bit of perfectionism.

Operating as usual

[04/05/21]   Hello everyone, I really hope that you’ve all been keeping well these past few months.

It’s with a heavy heart that I need to officially announce that I will not be reopening Practically Perfect going forward. My husband is still working from home full time (in what was my salon space) and there is currently no end date to this arrangement.

Furthermore, Archie will be starting school in September so after a lot of thinking and soul searching (especially given the intensity of this past year with both boys home for a lot of it) I’ve decided that I would like to persue something completely different -work wise- outside of my home once both boys are in full time education, hopefully in an office environment and back with lots of human interaction that I have missed so much after this past year.

It’s a new chapter (hopefully 😬) but it’s also a very bittersweet ending given the circumstances - I don’t think any of us could have predicted what the last year was going to bring or where it would lead us. But I do know that I will miss you all very much (and already do) and want to thank you all for your custom over the years 🥰

I’m always at the end of a message too - for any nail related chit chat or general life updates 😘

Lots of love always

[07/09/20]   Hello everyone! I hope you are all keeping well (and sane...ish) during this difficult time. Although the lockdown restrictions are gradually easing I have some unfortunate news to share with you all; regrettably at this time I am unable to return to work for 2 reasons; 1) I have no childcare as both of my kids are not back to school until at least September (oh god please let it be September 😫), and 2) my salon has been completely taken over (and RUINED if I’m honest 😩🥴) by my husband who is currently working from home full time and will be for the foreseeable future. So until both he (and my kids) return to work/school I have no option but to put Practically Perfect on the back burner for a little while longer whilst we figure out a more permanent plan of action.

I am SO, SO sorry for any inconvenience and disappointment this may cause, and I will of course update you all once I have any further developments to report.

Lots of love
Lisa
Xx

I know I don't post many #nailfies these days but I just HAD to post up these absolute beauties on my lovely client Katie. She chose this incredibly gorgeous yet classy combination of #cndshellac in Unlocked with @lovelecente glitter called Spark on ring fingers and some holographic silver stamping with a very cool geometric plate from @moyou_london on the rest of her nails. These are stunning IRL (as usual I've struggled to do them justice with my less-than-adequate photography skillz 😐). Oh, those nails are completely 100% natural, too 😍 #nailgoals

Who fancies some more nudes?? 😆🤤 (ok perhaps that second emoji is a bit too creepy when teamed with the word 'nudes' 😐). It's taken me ages fiddling with the colours on this to try and get a true depiction of these colours 😂 and yes that one on the right is a warm taupe-y grey!!! *punches air in delight* #nudenails #cndshellac #neutralnails

23/12/2017

Final post from me before signing off for Christmas! A few of you will be pleased to see that I FINALLY had chance to actually do my own nails!! 🙀Keeping it simple(ish 😂) with #cndshellac in Field Fox and a custom blend of 2 different pigments mixed with some top coat for the hand painted stripe. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR from me @ Practically Perfect Nails 😘 #nails #notd #glitternails

Couple of highlights from this week's Christmassy nails, as always it's been my favourite time of year to work as all the sparkles come out; I'm covered in glitter and I love it! A huge thank you to my loyal and lovely clients for their continued business and apologies for any new enquiries whom I've not been able to accommodate at this time; I promise I'll update my page as soon as I have capacity to take on new clients! 😘 #nails #nailstamping #glitternails #cndshellac @ Practically Perfect

Reposting to make sure all my regulars have seen this! 😊 xx

Hi everyone! It's finally nearing that time where I can start up again after a lovely (busy!) maternity leave hiatus!

Please note: my hours will unfortunately need to change (and drastically reduce :-( ) temporarily as I have very limited childcare at present, so please bear with me during this period of time.

CURRENT CLIENTS: Please message me if you would still like a regular slot in my books, so I can start to work out how to accomodate everyone.

NEW CLIENTS: I'm very sorry that at this time I am unable to take on any new clients. But please keep an eye on the page as I will of course post updates if any slots become available in my books.

Thank you for your continued support during this time. ###

[01/13/17]   So with just 2 weeks to go until Baby Boy #2's due date, I'm officially signing off! I just wanted to say thank you again to all my lovely clients for your continued support, I'm genuinely going to miss catching up with each of you at our 2/3/4 weekly appointment slots!!

I will be sure to post an update here once baby has made an appearance (let's hope for sooner rather than later... I'm SO uncomfortable now!!) and I'll also be contacting all my current clients personally once I feel ready to return to work (again, hoping for this to be sooner rather than later but of course this will be dictated by the baby!).

To those of you who are not yet a client but have made enquiries - again I am so sorry I am unable to accomodate you as yet but I promise I will be sure to let you know here when space comes available on my books for new clients, so please keep an eye out for that

Well that's me done for Christmas and New Year... And boy did we go out with a bang with these bad boys!!! They are flying out to Fiji in 5 days time so how else can you mix Christmas and hot climates but with a fusion of neons AND holochrome (and some hibiscus flower stamping)!! Mesmerising. #cndshellac #nails #nailstamping #christmasnails #neonnails #chromenails #rainbowchrome

23/12/2016

Some beautiful light gold glittered nails (over #cndshellac in Satin Pyjamas) with a gorgeous white fair isle stamping over the top gave these nails a really festive but classy feel, like expensive wrapping paper. #nails #glitternails #nailstamping #christmasnails

20/12/2016

How about these beauts for a festive trip to NYC next week? We were aiming for a starry sky effect... think we achieved that brief rather well 💞 #cndshellac in Grape Gum with a layer of Ice V***r and then some starry double stamping in a light gold and rose gold to finish 🌟✨ #nails #glitternails #nailstamping #doublestamping #christmasnails

20/12/2016

That's my Christmas nails sorted for the next couple of weeks! Actually LOVING this combo so much - #cndshellac in Asphalt with @lovelecente glitter in Holographic Pewter and then the beautiful Rainbow Chrome (also by @lovelecente ) on ring fingers with some stamping. SHHHPARKLYY 😍 #nails #notd #nailstamping #glitternails #christmasnails #fairisle #glitterfade

16/12/2016

Another set tonight I just had to share because... well... FAIR ISLE INNIT 😍😍 #cndshellac in Red Baroness with white stamping on top and then Cream Puff and @lovelecente glitter in Holographic White on ring fingers with red stamping to finish. Stamping design is the other way up at clients request, so don't worry that's deliberate for anyone wondering 😂😝 #nails #christmasnails #glitternails #nailstamping #fairisle

16/12/2016

Trying not to spam you all with Christmas nails!! But here's a set from today that were a bit different (and lovely!) - #cndshellac in Red Baroness with #doublestamping on ring fingers and thumbs and the gorgeous Ice V***r layered on middle fingers. #nails #glitternails #christmasnails #nailstamping

08/12/2016

I'm in my element with these festive nail requests! Super cute nails using #cndshellac in Tutti Frutti as the base with @lovelecente glitter in Capri over the top and a bit of double stamping on ring fingers to finish off. #nails #glitternails #nailstamping #christmasnails

08/12/2016

Beautifully wintery nails using #cndshellac in Creekside with @lovelecente glitter in White Holographic and some snowflake stamping 💞 #nails #nailstamping #glitternails #winternails #christmasnails

04/12/2016

My nails for the next couple of weeks using #cndshellac in Silver Chrome and Blackpool as the base colours and then my absolute FAVE @lovelecente glitter at the moment - silver holo multi glitz - over the Silver Chrome and a bit of double stamping over the Blackpool. #nails #notd #nailstamping #glitternails #doublestamping

04/12/2016

My client wanted loud nails ready for her neon disco birthday party yesterday... Think we met that brief rather well 😂😍 fun fact: they also glow under UV light!! 😮 base is #cndshellac in Cream Puff with neon additives in 3 seperate colours faded over the top, and then finished with some stamping. #nails #nailstamping #ombrenails #neonnails

26/11/2016

Love a bit of gradient stamping - these beauts are Fiji-bound imminently! Base colour #cndshellac in Naked Naivety with 2-tone stamping in a pastel pink and lilac. #nails #nailstamping #gradientstamping #ombrenails

26/11/2016

The beautiful #cndshellac in Field Fox with a stripe of Ice V***r on ring fingers - simple but very effective!! #nails #glitternails #nailart

21/11/2016

Had chance to use one of my beautiful new glitters today.... This bad boy is SERIOUSLY sparkly and might just be my new fave!!! Base colour is #cndshellac in Tutti Frutti with a glitter fade using one of @lovelecente new AW16 releases Silver Holographic Multi Glitz. #nails #glitternails #glitterfade

19/11/2016

Another photo to showcase the holographic goodness 💞💞 #notd #nailstamping #glitterfade #glitternails #rainbowchrome

19/11/2016

Finally had chance to play with my new pretties from @lovelecente 😍 #cndshellac in Tutti Frutti with a glitter fade in new Silver Holographic Multi Glitz glitter on middle fingers and some stamping plus the STUNNING new rainbow chrome powder on ring fingers (and thumbs!). Guys this rainbow chrome powder is INSANE... An absolute must for the festive season (and beyond). More swatches to follow once I get chance!! #nails #nailstamping #glitternails #glitterfade #notd #rainbowchrome

Ok now these are BEAUTIFUL. Reminiscent of a very chic and expensive wallpaper, using #cndshellac in Cityscape as the base colour and stamping in silver. #nails #nailstamping

04/11/2016

Really REALLY loving this combo!! #cndshellac in Tango Passion with a layer of Ice V***r over the top. Ice V***r is so versatile, adding a gorgeous sparkle to any colour you choose. 😍 #nails #glitternails

04/11/2016

Had a bit of fun with advanced stamping in a geometric design with these - using #cndshellac in Field Fox and Rubble on ring fingers as the base colours. Takes a bit longer (and oh so fiddly!) but worth it for the finished result I think! #nails #nailstamping #advancedstamping

04/11/2016

These were by far the hardest set of nails to ever capture in a photo!!! Simply does not do them justice, we used #cndshellac in one of the sparkly new colours Garnet Glamour (a deep red with glitter) and then stamped over the top with a beautiful black lacy design ready for Halloween. Stunning, please take my word for it!! 😂 #nails #glitternails #nailstamping

04/11/2016

I've been a bit remiss with posting nail photos recently... Blame the baby brain!! Here's a few from the past couple of weeks which warranted photographing! 😍 Autumnal beauties with cute little hand painted hearts using #cndshellac in Wild Moss & Rubble plus a lovely soft gold glitter. #nails #glitternails #nailart
